Northfield’s Monster of the Electric Bass

MrSticky.jpgThat would be Aaron Anderson, bassist in Northfield’s own Mr. Sticky.

Anderson, along with Jeff Hutchison, Dave Zdenek, and Jeffy Paskell will cause some low-end shaking and/or shaking of some low-ends, at the Upstairs Rueb (503 Division Street) from 7 to 11 pm this Friday night, February 29th, as part of the ArtOrg Concert Series. Mr. Sticky wants to take the world for a ride with the top down and the tunes up. Loaded with rhythm, adrenaline, and instrumental wizardry, Mr. Sticky reinforces rock lessons learned long ago. They’re appearing with Toaster Fork, a band with nothing to prove, but a whole lot of groove.

Also appearing in Downtown Northfield on Friday night will be Last Known Whereabouts, a local band recently featured in the Northfield News. The band will be at the Contented Cow, 302B Division Street, starting at 7:30 pm. The band features newgrass music, an amazing mix of bluegrass and jazz, seasoned with a bit of anything else.

Saturday, March 1st, there’s a dance performance at St. Olaf College. It’s an improvisational work in dance, lighting and music and will not only feature everything from break-dancing to tap dancing, but will encourage audience members to put on their dancing shoes for part of the show as well. The performance is free and open to the public, in Dittman Center, Studio 1 at 7:30 pm.

Also on the 1st, is the Carleton College Choir Concert performance. The program includes works by Orlando Gibbons, Johann Sebastian Bach, Felix Mendelssohn-Bartholdy, Alexandre Gretchaninoff, William Henry Smith, Gerald Finzi, Stephen Paulus, Daniel E. Gawthrop, Alexander Freeman and others. 8 pm in the Carleton Concert Hall, it too is free and open to the public.
